The Wayward Henry

Meet Water for the Well, a pair of musicians who stumbled into each other’s musical arms through a mutual crazy love of bluegrass and the banjo… Freya Hanly, the veteran lone songwriter, meets Jason Fados, banjo player who is leading a not-so-secret double life as a rock, funk, blues and soul guitarist. To put your finger on the genre of this unique collaboration will depend on which song you catch – at times too fast moving to even see the fingers involved in the banjo antics, at others times so unhurried, there is simply no need to pin it down. Somewhere between folk and bluegrass, images of a stream rolling over rocks will be followed by infectious driving numbers filled with cheek, all engulfed by Jason’s sassy banjo and Freya’s distinctively elegant voice. Their panoramic song writing explores fresh musical and emotional territory that will drop you off in one realm of sound and pick you up in another.
